Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharjee on Wednesday said the Left Front would continue to focus on industrialisation by setting up more and more units in the state.

"We had taken the initiative to set up industries. I had tried my best. If we fail to create jobs, the state will head for a dangerous situation. We will continue to focus on industrialisation. We want more industries," he told an election meeting here.

In an apparent dig at Trinamool Congress, he said the people would not forgive those who were opposing it.

"Despite opposition, investments in the state did not stop," he said.

Bhattacharjee said apart from industrialisation, the Front would try to improve the rationing system to help the poor.

Turning to the LF's achievement in agriculture sector, he said very few states could be compared with West Bengal which was in the forefront in production of rice, vegetables and jute.

He said, "People have seen what we could do and what we could not do. Bengal has not lagged behind. The people would not have supported the LF had it failed."

Bhattacharjee said people would decide whether the state would move forward or head for dangerous consequence.
